What Is Kava?
Kava is a small shrub grown in Pacific islands. The root and stump of the plant are ground down and made into a natural, non-alcoholic beverage. Kava has been used for centuries in social rituals, religious ceremonies and for medicinal purposes. The effects of different Kava can vary, but they all lift mood and give the feeling of relaxation.
Certain Kava is best for daytime and socialization use, and others are best for evening relaxation as a natural sleep aid. Some users find Kava to be a perfect replacement for alcoholic beverages in social situations, but most find that regardless of the Kava variety, it helps ease stress and anxiety
